Disney World Treats for Guests with Special Diets

Update: Disney is no longer offering Divvies. They are currently offering bakery items from the Enjoy Life and OMG Manufacturers along with Rocky Mountain Popcorn, and Surf Sweets Jelly Beans throughout the Parks and Resorts.

WDW strives to accommodate guests with special diets. While dining at table service restaurants can be extremely enjoyable even for diners with dietary concerns, finding snacks can be more time-consuming. Don’t spend time on your vacation looking for safe treats, read our Allergies and Intolerances information before your trip. You’ll discover counter-service locations that cater to special diets and places to get your Divvies such as the Main Street Bakery!

Products such as Divvies snacks (no eggs, no nuts, no dairy) are available throughout the resort. Gluten-free products are also sold in Walt Disney World. Vegans can find yummy snacks too. The popcorn in the parks uses an animal-free butter flavoring!

When time permits, venture over to Downtown Disney to visit BabyCakes NYC for inspired sweet treats!

    Also if you are vegan and gluten free, you can get rice dream or soy ice cream at Gasparilla Grill.

    I love going to WDW and getting good treatment while dealing with food allergies. I know a few of the table service restaurants also have milk free sherbet when asked. Also gluten free buns or biscuits. Talk to the chef, I have never had a disappointing meal yet.

    I am looking forward to my next trip to get to try Babycakes.

    I love going to Disney because they usually do a very good job at accommodating people with food allergies. We may pass by Babycakes during our trip in June. However, I’m sort of baffled by the fact that it says that guests with common allergies may dine there safely and then in bold it says items may not be nut free. Strange since nut/peanut allergies are pretty common now days. But we will definitely pass by and check the place out.

    Also, I’ve always had mixed experiences with the whole Divvies products at WDW. I’ve had Disney send me the sheet that states where you can get certain items such as divvies and then while in the parks, those places say they don’t carry them. It’s happened on our last 2 trips. :(

    @gaylin I believe it’s Disney policy that if you notify the server or any food allergy a chef will come to your table and talk to you. I’m not sure, but recently my mushroom allergy has gotten worse so I’ve been extra vigilant. At Kouzzina the chef came right out to talk to us, and I had the same experience at Sanna. I’ve never inquired elsewhere, only when I have a legitimate question.

    @Cherie It may be that the nut statement is a legal piece? Just a guess.

    @galloping, yes it is policy, I have talked to many, many chefs while at WDW!

    Disney is so accommodating when it comes to special diets…thanks for all the great ideas that I’ll have to try on my upcoming trip in July!
    If you’re vegan, be sure to check out Kitty’s blog called The Bashful Vegan on Blogger. She gives lots of advice about being vegan in Disney World.
